The Best Luxury 5th Wheel RV in 2021
If you’ve been on the road for a while, especially as a full-timer, you’ll soon come to realize not all RVs are created equal.
If you are in the market for a top-notch RV for experienced campers, the Forest River Cedar Creek fifth wheels are just what you need.
Forest River Cedar Creek Fifth Wheels: The Smart Choice for the Experienced RVer
When you’re just starting with RVing, you may be a little timid. You’ll probably want to stick to RV parks, paved roads, and mild temperatures. But once you realize how wonderful RVing is, you’ll be ready to push the limits and take your RV to places it hasn’t gone before.
The trouble is, not all RVs are ready for that. Forest River designed the Cedar Creek fifth wheels to withstand tough roads and extreme temperatures, so you don’t have to miss out on anything the great outdoors has to offer.
The Cedar Creek fifth wheels come equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system, automatic leveling system, and heated storage compartments. The bonded side walls have increased resistance to UV light, heat, cold, moisture, oil, and gas to keep your rig looking and working newer for longer. It also has safety enhancements including Dexter brakes, flex suspension, and heavy-duty axles. Another great exterior perk is the 190-watt solar panel.
You can also enjoy outdoor living with the Cedar Creek fifth wheels because they come with an electric awning, outdoor shower, outdoor kitchen with a mini-fridge, slide-out grill in some models, and more.
The Convenience package has everything you need with a gel coat front cap, 12-gallon water heater, and high performance, ducted AC unit with dual control. It also has a lot of tech-savvy upgrades including USB charging ports throughout, King WiFi router and range extender, and it is wired for the Furrion 4 camera security system so you can rest easy at night.
All the models will impress you with the quality interior features including grey cabinets, stainless steel appliances, residential faucet with sprayer, and large windows for taking in the views with blackout shades in the bedroom for a better night’s sleep.
The bathroom has a large shower with a seat and sliding glass doors. The bathroom has other upgrades for convenience including an upgraded shower head, porcelain toilet, storage space for linens, and an LED night light under the vanity.
The bedroom is spacious and boasts a king bed in almost every model. You’ll also love the additional storage under the bed and in the flip-up dresser top. A classy residential-style headboard and luxurious bedding tie everything together.
While the entire line of Cedar Creek fifth wheels features the above, there are some variations in the floor plan that we’ll go over next. That way you can pick your favorite and enjoy RVing where you’ve never gone before.
291RW Model Overview
The 291 model comes in at 33’ 3”. The bedroom, which contains a slide-out for the king bed, is upstairs in the front of the 5th wheel. Behind this, also upstairs, is the spacious bathroom.
As you continue downstairs, you’ll enjoy a huge living and kitchen area made possible by two opposing slides. The kitchen has a free-standing island and the living area has theater seating for two opposite a hide-a-bed sofa that seats three. It also has a free-standing table and chairs.
Another thing we love is the fact that you can add a dishwasher to the kitchen island. If you are a full-timer, you will understand just how amazing this feature is!
To make things feel even homier, there is also a fireplace in the back of the RV with a TV above. It is the perfect living room for hanging out with friends and family!
311RL Model Overview
Another great option is the 35’ 3” 311 model. The upstairs is the same as the 291. Downstairs, the layout is almost exactly the same as the 291.
The primary difference is the extra length moves the 3 person hide-a-bed couch to the back and opens up additional counter and storage space in the kitchen. The living area also has a fireplace and TV, which you can see easily from the theater seating.
345IK Model Overview
With a similar layout, the 345 Cedar Creek fifth wheel is another excellent choice that has a few interior upgrades. It is 37’ 1”. This added length is especially noticeable in the bathroom, which has additional space and storage. The bathroom also has a sink with two faucets, so no more waiting to get ready for bed at the end of a long day.
All the other features and the overall layout mirrors the 311 model.
335LF Model Overview
The 335 model is where things take on a fresh look for the interior. The upstairs is basically the same, with the king bed and large bathroom. But downstairs will feel completely different from all the previous models.
Immediately downstairs from the bedroom is the open floor plan kitchen and living area. It has a spacious kitchen with a kitchen island that, like the other models, can house a dishwasher if desired. There is theater seating for two in this area. The living area has less seating space, but here’s why.
There is an additional half bath at the back of the living area. Then up a single step from there is a whole additional room. You could use this room as an office with its built-in desk. Or it could serve as a second bedroom by taking advantage of the hide-a-bed sofa. The room even has a dresser for additional storage space.
This model is excellent for families or for people who work on the road and need a space to be productive.
360RL Model Overview
The 360 model brings us back to the same overall floor plan as the 345 with the bed in front, followed by a large bathroom with 2 faucets in the sink. Downstairs is one main living and kitchen area.
The way the 360 differs is that it sacrifices a bit of counter space to get a larger pantry. Even so, there is plenty of counter space on the kitchen island.
371FL Model Overview
This model of Cedar Creek fifth wheels is unlike any of the previous layouts. It is also the longest option yet measuring in at 40‘ 11”. It is a perfect design for movie or sports fans because it has an awesome theater area upstairs in the front of the RV. The theater has two power theater seats and two sofas that each seat three people. These sofas are on opposing slides to make the room feel huge. The theater also has a large entertainment center.
Downstairs in the main living area, some changes from the previous model that we love are the hutch with additional overhead cabinets. There is also an additional closet and a large pantry. Seriously, this fifth wheel has a TON of storage space! We just can’t get over it. The living area has two opposing slides to really open up the room too. And there is a bonus half bath.
Moving further back is a large bedroom suite with a king-size bed, a second TV, and plenty of wardrobe space. Then, in the very back is the huge master bathroom! It has a sliding door and includes room for a washer and dryer, linen closet, and an additional drop-down storage area. This master suite is one of the most spacious we have ever seen in an RV.
377BH Model Overview
The 377BH is 40’ 8” long and resembles the layout of the 360. The main difference, which we absolutely love, is the small room tucked just off the kitchen in the middle of the floor plan. It has a hide-a-bed sofa that seats three, a wardrobe, and it also has a loft! It is a perfect extra space for those with small kids or an occasional visitor.
377OF Model Overview
Like its partner in number, the 377 OF is also 40’ 8”. It too has a small separate room in the middle of the layout just down the stairs. Instead of a loft and pull out couch though, this room is designed with the working professional in mind. It has a large desk seated in a slide. You will feel you have the corner office with this layout!
Everything else is essentially the same as the 360 model. The bedroom and bathroom are upstairs and the living and kitchen area is at the back of the fifth wheel.
385TH Model Overview
As if all the previous models weren’t wonderful enough, Forest River outdid themselves and offer a 40’ 7” toy hauler version of their amazing Cedar Creek fifth wheel.
In the front is a large entertainment area with two opposing slides and seating for eight. Behind this room is a half wall which leads to the kitchen and dining area that also has two opposing slides.
Behind that is the bathroom and then up two stairs is the bedroom with a queen-size bed and a small slide to open up additional storage space. Then, in the very back and totally walled off from the bedroom so you won’t even know it is there, is the toy hauler. If you like to bring your toys on the road, this is the perfect fifth wheel for you!
388DB Model Overview
Another option in the Cedar Creek line is the 40’ 3” 388 DB model. Upstairs in the front of the RV is a huge master suite. It has a bathroom in the very front with two sinks and an enormous wardrobe. There is a king-size bed just behind with a sliding door to close off the bathroom.
The downstairs has an open floor plan with two opposing slides, seating for five, and a free-standing dinette. A huge perk of this living area is the added half bath added. We also love the bench seat and storage area that is right inside the door. No more tripping over your shoes when you’re coming in and out.
388RK Model Overview
Last but not least in this amazing line of fifth wheels is the 388RK which is 40’ 4”. Although you might expect it to be very similar to the 388 DB, it is actually quite different. The upstairs is similar to, with a master suite with a large bathroom and king bed, but that is where the similarities end.
Moving downstairs, there is a half bath with room for a washer and dryer. Then there is a theater area with seating for four, including a hide-a-bed sofa which slides out. Opposite that is another slide which houses the table and a sizeable desk. The desk faces the window so you can enjoy the views while you work.
The kitchen is in the back. It doesn’t have an island or space for a dishwasher and is a little smaller than some other models. If you aren’t a master chef, though, it will still meet all of your needs.
Cedar Creek Fifth Wheels Have It All
As you can see, the Cedar Creek fifth wheels have it all. With unmatched luxury, an array of floor plans to choose from, and upgraded features and capabilities, this fifth wheel is ready to go anywhere you are. It is perfect for experienced RVers who are looking to upgrade to a top of the line fifth wheel.
